CONNECTICUT "CHESTNUT GLASS" STORAGE JAR - RARE SIZE AND FORM

 

ITEM 8394. STORAGE JAR, bright olive yellow, cylindrical, tubular pontil scar, 5 7/8"H x 3"D, sheared and fire polished mouth, a mint jar exhibiting the expected usage wear. Blown at a Connecticut Glass House, 1790-1820, rare form.

Blown of "chestnut glass" this handsome storage jar is quite an early piece that was blown contemporaneous to the more commonly seen globular bottles, Pitkin-type flasks and chestnut bottles of the late 18th and early 19th century. Jars of this period are rarely encountered and with its wildly off-center flared mouth this is a particularly appealing example.
